Sustainable city means “manage human, natural and financial resources to meet current needs while ensuring that adequate resources are equitably available for future generations”. (Jay Burney,2014) Just like New York City and Portland, in Palestine with our limited resources, we need to implement the sustainable concept in our life and cities, so I seek throw my project to stand a foundation for Palestinian cities to start thinking thro sustainable window and direct their decision toward sustainability. So to reach my goal, first I select a Palestinian city to implement the sustainable concept, I chose Jericho as my sustainable model based on the three pillar of sustainability economic, environment and social, then I analyzed the city based on the three pillar of sustainability with SWOT analysis, and based on the site analysis I come up with vision for the city and then a concept plan for the three pillar of sustainability , then finalized it with master plan for Jericho to reflect the sustainability concept, based on the master plan I proposed projects to enhance the three pillar of sustainability Economic pillar project: • Proposed Bridge, to enhance the connectivity and mobility of the city. • Proposed street. • Ring road in the CBD area. • Urban corridor. • Agro urban park in the CBD area. • Livestock Farm and Processing Center. • Agriculture Research Center to improve the farmer skills in farming. • Compost Farm Factory. • Drinking Water Treatment Plant.
